RAA Cat Risk Management 2018: Embracing Volatility

Event - 13.02.2018

Join ModEx at The RAA Cat Risk Management conference on the 13th to 15th of February in Florida. 

Simplitium's James Lay will be speaking during the 16.30 Breakout Session on the 13th about the Oasis Platform in Practice.

If you would like to book a meeting with the ModEx team during conference, please contact James Lay on james.lay@cinnober.com

The 2017 Hurricane season proved our industry still has much to learn about volatility in the risks we insure. The 2018 RAA Cat Risk Management Conference will focus on scientific and theoretical developments that will challenge your current thinking. 

Was the 2017 hurricane season abnormal, or is it a return to the mean? Should we have expected the severe flooding in Houston? Do the models properly reflect the volatility we think we are seeing? Are we using the models correctly to account for the volatility? What are your peers in the industry thinking? Embracing this volatility, treating it as an opportunity rather than as an insurmountable obstacle, is a valuable stratagem to manage the increasing risks confronting the industry.

The industry is faced with choices of models, and additional options within each model.
